The EQUUS Film Festival is the world’s premier showcase for domestic and international equestrian content feature films, documentaries, shorts, music videos, commercials, training and educational videos, art and literature.
The fifth annual EQUUS Film Festival will take place November 16-19, 2017 in New York City and is the first event of its kind to offer a home to the storytellers of the horse world. In addition to documentaries, educational and feature films, the EQUUS Film Festival also includes equestrian films that cover everything from equine assisted mental and physical therapy, films that will warm your heart and bring tears to your eyes, to documentaries that tackle the tough issues facing our horses today. Wild Horse Resolution and A Back Country Recovery are classic examples of these films. Albion, the Enchanted Stallion, Out of The Wild, Running Wild and Unbridled are some examples of feature films that have premiered at this annual event.

What is a Hobby Film?
It’s a homemade video about horses. The film must be like a feature film, documentary or music video. If you are doing film work as a hobby, the movies can be done with a mobile phone or a film or video camera. Please do not send us "advertising films" to any coach, barn, product, etc. These are not accepted.
